Nintendo brings virtual reality to Switch with the new Labo VR kit

Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will launch with two primary configurations - the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit and the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Starter Set + Blaster - while owners of the Starter Set looking to expand their Labo VR experience can purchase two optional expansion sets.

Here's something perhaps a lot of the people reading this weren't expecting - the next Nintendo Labo kit is a VR headset.

The Nintendo Labo VR Kit lets gamers build a headset mostly out of cardboard so that they can slide in the device to create what the company calls "basic VR technology". Those who buy the Starter Set can then complete their collection later on by purchasing two expansions-one including the Elephant and Camera, the other including the Wind Pedal and Bird. VR Kit will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99 and includes materials to build all six Toy-Con projects - the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant - as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".

The "simple" cardboard VR set will serve as the fourth kit in the Labo line and offer up six new DIY Toy-Con creations for players to make and enjoy. You can also turn off the VR feature and use the included Screen Holder to experience content in 2D. Both the Labo: VR Kit Starter Set + Blaster and the fully equipped Labo: VR Kit will be available online and in stores on April 12.

The new product is Nintendo's first move into VR in more than two decades, after the 1995 Virtual Boy flopped with consumers.

"The Starter Set + Blaster kit provides an action-packed introduction to the experience", the official website continues. One includes all Toy-Con creations and the other is a smaller, introductory kit. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.
